Have heard various styles of music thus far; a slow Motown type song, some electronic music.  Deep voiced male announcer, so could be Johnny Tobacco.  S5 in New York at 2023 UTC.  Some USB chatter nearby.  Sounds like some polka type music at 2025 UTC.  Carrier of at 2028 UTC.  Now sounding like call to prayer on
6300 kHz in USB mode.

I don't have a carrier, I think it's in USB.  Tuned in at 1332 UTC, really hard to make out what this is.  It sounds like Christmas vocals at times ("Ave Maria"), but also a ute on top of it?

Song with male vocals, sounds a bit like Creedence Clearwater Revival at 2322 tune-in.  S7 signal, but the band is noisy for me.  Another pop song at 2324 UTC. "Stir it Up" at 2330 UTC.

Two-tone bands like Madness and The Specials owe their careers to this man's music.

I've got a carrier here and some very weak audio at 2328 UTC.  Talk by OM at 2330 UTC.  Noise levels are just too high to copy anything unfortunately.  This could be Radio Marabu, maybe someone else will get a clear ID.  S5 signal in NY, but most of that is noise.

Hearing CW at S6 levels in NY at 1426 UTC.  Figured I'd post first, then fire up the software to try to decode it.  

Stranglers "Golden Brown" at 1430 UTC.

There was some more CW at 1439, I didn't catch all of it, but here's what CWGet decoded:

No ID yet, but according to their FB page, this should be them, and will be on until 2300 UTC.  Passion Pit with "1985" when I tuned in.  S9 signal in NY with a bit of fading.

2231 Hockey "Too Fake"

2310 Still on the air, Caveman "Never Want to Know"
2312 RJD2 "The Stranger"

Lots of new tunes (at least for me) tonight.  Thanks Mr. A. C.

Weak signal, possibly a song by the Band when I tuned in at 2245 UTC.  S5-S6 in NY, but a lot of that is just atmospheric noise.  As per Iann's chat, this is Radio Focus International.

2251 "Why Can't We Be Friends?"

"I'm Your Captain" at sign-on.  S9+ into New York.  And off at 1647.

Started from an open carrier, trumpet music at 1500 UTC.  Signal is bombing in here in NY, very clear audio.  Opening music is the Godfather Waltz.

The Godfather theme continues with "Love Theme" at 1515 UTC.  Audio is sounding real good!

1605 Music stopped, but carrier still on, now off.

Maybe we should call this Godfather Radio?

Hearing some music, signal is equal to noise at this point; waiting for the band to open.  

1312 "You Got To" - Groove Armada
1323 "G-Force" - The Prodigy
1326 ID, but all I could make out was, "This is ....."
1327 "Relax" - Frankie Goes to Hollywood (didn't need Shazam for that one)
1338 "You Spin Me Round" - Dead or Alive (again, Shazam not needed).
1406 Carrier off.

Based on the music and frequency, I'm guessing this may be Liquid Radio.  The reference to 97.7 FM is another clue that this is probably Liquid Radio, as their website mentions that frequency.

Can hear some rock music, weak signal here in NY.  Only S2-S3 at the moment.

Signal just improved dramatically to S5 at 1502 UTC.  "Hand Jive" in progress.  Sounds like George Thorogood.

Shazam says "Click Click Boom" by Saliva at 1505 UTC.
1510 "You Get What You Give" New Radicals
1515 A little bit of "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" by Daft Punk, then a change in programming.  Some kind of announcement, or a radio drama.
1517 "Chocolate Salty Balls" from South Park
1520 "Dedication" Thin Lizzy
1525 "Jamming"  The ionosphere is very unsettled right now.  Signal is slowly fluctuating between S2 with a lot of noise, to s6.  Audio sounds real good on the Bob Marley tune.
1528 "Hair of the Dog" Nazareth
1532 Sounds like Robin Trower - "Day of the Eagle"
1552 "Not For Sale" Girlschool
1556 Signal just to a serious nose dive right into the noise. 

Nice selection of music, and good audio when the signal was at S6 level.

2229 Song by the Cars
2232 Another voice over, heard pirate radio and Facebook
2238 "Senses Working Overtime" - Still listening to remote receiver.  Too much local QRN on my radio now.
